About the event
The Riding 4 Wellness Cycling event takes place virtually, in any outdoor scenic area like the St. Tammany Trace or just your neighborhood, wherever you may live. It starts on April 1st, 2022. The goal is for you to ride as much as you are able until April 29th. Depending on your age bracket the top riders will receive a special prize if the most miles are ridden! This month-long cycling challenge is perfect for all level of cyclists. From lazy afternoon beginners to early morning road bikers, you can help COAST raise awareness to the benefits of cycling.
Early bird fees are $25 and Early Bird VIP fees are $40. Registrations received after March 25, 2022 are $35 and $50 for VIP. All riders will receive a handy multipurpose tool with screw driver, flashlight, compass, pen and stylus, plus a sport pack. VIP riders will also receive a performance cycling shirt.
Participants can ride as much or as little as they choose during April. The idea is for each rider to challenge him or herself to be more active than they would have been otherwise. For those who push themselves, there will be additional prizes. Most miles ridden will be recognized in four age groups: Under 40, 40 – 60, 60 – 75, and over 75. Men’s and women’s prizes will be awarded. There is also a prize for most miles on an electric or pedal-assist bike. Riders will record miles on the Strava app at (www.strava.com/clubs/riding4wellness).
